The Cooper School Daily

Spreading Joy

Valentine’s Day Concert

The Cooper School tradition of having a Valentine’s Day Concert continues to warm our hearts and spread joy on this day of celebrating love. Students were excited to share their hard work and show off their singing and musical skills. Miss Hazel continues to amaze as she guides groups of students through learning recorders, strings, solos and group coordination. The smiles on the parents and students alike made our day!

Reading Buddies

Valentine’s Day also brought Third Graders joy through shared reading. Students buddied up with First Grade to read books about love, friendship and joy. Third Graders were impressed with the reading skills of their First Grade friends and enjoyed the shared experience.




Compliment Books

Another TCS tradition for Valentine’s Day is sharing Compliment Books. Leading up to this, students have been working to write a kind and thoughtful compliment for each of their friends in the class. These are then assembled into a book for each student, full of these kind words from their friends. Third Graders couldn’t decide if they liked the giving or the receiving of these cards more. Either way, they spread joy throughout the classroom as students read what their friends had written.



As our Asia Study continues, Third Graders worked together to build a model of the country of China out of salt dough. This model will be the base and centerpiece for our class presentation on Monday, February 26th. Now, Third Graders are busy planning their small models to add to this map to show where their research topics take place in the country of China.
